Party of ten...reservation was smooth with seating on time. Service was good as we let the wait staff drive our orders which we all shared. The Vanilla stoli with coconut rum (Haiku)was really good but kind of a battle to get the larger size I wanted...it is not that hard to just make a taller drink and charge for the extra size if need be. Best dish by far was the short ribs. Tied for second place is the Bass and Misfit roll. The rest of the food was good but not outstanding. Poorest entree was the Shaking beef which had too tough a texture (I think it was flank steak) and a little short on flavor. It is hard to compare to the short ribs which were just fantastic. I suggest sitting in the room with the green lights if you go...nice ambiance.
This restaurant is absolutely amazing you will love it!!! Food is fantastic and the service is incredible!!! This is my absolute FAVORITE restaurant!!! You will love the food presentation especially the ahi it comes in this what looks like a vase with dried ice. The shaking beef is also DELICIOUS!!!!! I have not had even a so so dish there they are all GREAT!!!!
We decided to try out Xanh for Father's Day.
There were 11 of us in the party.
The kids had thier own table and the adults in a seperate table.
The food was really good and different (in a good way)
The presentation of the food was also very good (nice plates and very modern looking presentation :)).
Service was also very good.
One person in our group ordered the crab which took a long time
He also expected to be given a bib because it was really messy but they didn't have any bib, so he just made sure not to splatter food all over his shirt :).
Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience @ xanh.
Xanh is excellent for Vietnamese fusion food. A few favorites - shrimp cakes (can get messy - use the wetnaps they provide!) and grapefruit shrimp salad (cute and creative). The sea bass is nothing unusual or spectacular, but in a large group, someone will inevitably want to order it. Try to order some of the more creative dishes for a funner, more unique meal! The food is great, better than 3 seasons in Palo Alto, but the prices are high.
